Abstract

As of right now, NASA and other space programs are estimating that by 2026, there will be people living in Space. Whether it be the Moon or Mars, one cannot have a functional society without a proper source of laws, especially since no one country has ownership over space. "One Small Step" will produce this source of laws, called the “Space Bill of Rights,” that will outline important matters like the trade of resources, medical care, government officials, and will ensure the preservation of our physical and figurative footsteps in space. This Space Bill of Rights is made up of two main sections: federal laws and laws pertaining to medical ethics. This poster will show the significance behind having set laws in place in order to form a new society while still protecting and preserving human health, human rights, and peace among the several countries who are still running in the modern-day Space Race. The research used responses from international surveys, which has led to a revision of the Bill.
